Branson’s Famous Baldknobbers

Branson's Famous Baldknobbers is now celebrating 60 plus years of performing in Branson, the Mabe family has been in the live show business since 1959!

Many people visit Branson for the stunning lake views, shopping, exciting attractions and gorgeous hills that the Ozark area is known for. Even though Branson is full of fun and adventure for the whole family, live shows are the backbone of Branson's Entertainment District.

The Mabe family began the Baldknobbers Jamboree Show in 1959, which means they are celebrating 60+ years in the music business! Through the years they've moved from a rustic lakeside setting to the beautiful Branson Famous Theatre located on MO 165.

Playing washboards and banjos on the lakeshore for tourists and locals alike is how the Mabe family entertainment began. Highlighting Branson’s unique history in every show, the Mabe family made the journey every step of the way with Branson becoming an entertainment destination. With a grassroots beginning, several generations of Mabes have continued the tradition of entertaining.
